Public invited to community governors meeting

CRYSTAL LAKE – Anyone interested in learning more about the direction of local hospital care, and the concerns of some area physicians about the current Centegra Health System administration, is encouraged to attend a meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Crystal Lake Holiday Inn, 800 S. Route 31.

Topics will include hospital privileges, the move toward salaried hospitalists versus independent doctors and the ramifications for patient care as well as hospital system viability; administrative salaries; pending litigation; alleged bylaws changes; and clarification of the process for becoming a community governor, and the process for nominating candidates to the Centegra Board of Governors. 

Community governors are residents of Centegra’s service area who have applied for and been approved for membership after paying nominal dues. This group numbers about 266, according to a list provided by Centegra to Dr. William Dam, coordinator of the special community governors meeting. For information, call Dam at 847-989-3114 or email doctordam@aol.com.
